Council approves $400,000 in budgeted infrastructure improvements.

The City of Lawrenceville Gas Department will begin a new project in Loganville in early February 2019. Work is estimated to begin on February 11.  On January 7, 2019, the Mayor and City Council approved approximately $400,000 in budgeted funds to upgrade a portion of the community’s robust gas system. The project calls for replacing approximately four miles of gas mains inside the City of Loganville, upgrading 1950’s-era pipe with modern-day materials.  

“Lawrenceville’s gas system provides a huge resource to the City and ensures our future from a financial standpoint,” noted Chuck Warbington, City Manager. “It is vitally important to maintain our lines as customer service and reliability are paramount to our continued success as a natural gas provider. These improvements also keep ongoing maintenance costs down due to steady upgrades and modernization of our infrastructure.”

This project will be the first of two phases and will affect residents on the following streets in Loganville:  Main, Mill, Broad, Fair, CS Floyd, Camp, Rock, Pecan, Church, Covington, Long, Line, Clifford, and Highway 20/81.  The project is expected to take approximately four months to complete.

The City of Lawrenceville Natural Gas Department was established in the 1950’s and currently serves approximately 50,000 customers in four counties:  Gwinnett, Newton, Rockdale, and Walton. It is the 2nd largest municipally owned gas department in the State of Georgia.  There are 43 employees in the division, led by Todd Hardigree, Department Director. Since 2015, the City of Lawrenceville Natural Gas Department has completed a $22M upgrades for gas infrastructure.
